Hi, I found. Link somewhere on this site for Parkrun so I've just registered.
who's done them? What are they like? I've shied away from one of the local running groups near to me because they look to be a very dedicated group and whilst I love running every other day, I'm not (yet at least) interested in how fast I go, improving my times, or anything other than bumbling along. My aim is to get fit, both body and mind and be able to say 'oh yeah, I run 5k 3x week" as if it's nothing special! My local group seems set up for serious, long distance running so I'm a bit intimidated if I'm honest! The Parkrun site sounds as though you can just turn up with your barcode and go off with a big group of people and it's not quite so well, serious. I don't mean I want to muck about or anything but rather, I'd just like to run at my gentle speed knowing there are others beside me with the same goal - to get round and say "I've done it", and to only have to go as and when I can commit the time. I'd feel I'd be letting the group down if I joined and couldn't go T the specified times very often.
Just wondered what your experiences are?
FYI: I've joined Alice Holt in Farnham. Anyone else go there?
